Doodle authority Betty Peto not only specializes in doodle hair care, she also answered the plea of “don’t poodle my doodle” from many Austin pet parents. The salon owner and author of **“**Dog Nail Trimming: A Compassionate Guide for Safe and Collaborative Nail Trimming” also launched the Doodle Grooming Academy, a doodle-dedicated series of classes to teach the tenets (and tools) of tress taming for at-home styling sessions.
When your dog needs a day at the spa, pet insurance can help ensure a peaceful retreat. Consider protecting your dog with a ManyPets pet health insurance plan to help you cover veterinary care in case your dog gets more than a bad ’do at the groomer.
